The celebration recognizes the achievements of the 2019 Big Read youth leaders. "Pride" author Ibi Zoboi, a two-time National Book Award finalist, is the special guest for this special evening.
"Pride," a 21st-century take on the 19th century's beloved "Pride and Prejudice," is the focus of Albion's 2019 Big Read. Throughout October, the Big Read sponsors a number of community book discussions led by Albion youth. Films and special events round out the October celebration of reading together.
Free copies of "Pride" are available at Albion City Hall, the Albion District Library, the Charles Snyder Center, Pure Albion, or the Albion College English Department!
These events are free and open to the public. For more information, contact Big Read director Jess Roberts at , or see the Big Read website, http://albionbigread.org/.
